Transcript of Perspective Lesson and Portraiture

CONTOUR drawing
PRACTICE different angles
OBSERVE change in facial expressions
TRY doing some studies of a skull if you can, (try the local museum,art school, anatomy books or school science department) as this will help you understand the planes of the face
TRY different mediums
PORTRAY emotion
ADD the magic!
The Art of Portraiture

by Carolina Corona
To create the illusion of a 3D space on a 2D surface consider:
Horizon line and Vanishing point
Placement of object
Vertical location ( the higher the closer)
Atmospheric perspective: objects lack detail the further they are
Linear perspective: converging lines intersect at vanishing point
Straight up and down lines are always vertical, they do not go to vanishing point

Placement of Objects
Vertical location
Atmospheric Perspective
Linear Perspective
Vertical Lines
Perspective as a design tool
The Dimensions of Perspective
converging lines
Assignment: Take at least 10 pictures from a weird perspective. Make sure you include the use of every dimension mentioned in class.
What is perspective in art?
the art of drawing solid objects on a two-dimensional surface so as to give the right impression of their height, width, depth, and position in relation to each other when viewed from a particular point.
Attempts begun around the 5th century BC. in the art of Ancient Greece, as part of creating an illusion of depth in theatrical scenery
Using flat panels on a stage to give the illusion of depth

During the late Middle Ages (14th and 15th centuries) Giotto attempted an algebraic method to determine the placement of distant lines
In about 1413 Filippo Brunelleschi, demonstrated the geometrical method of perspective, used today by artists
He painted the outlines of various Florentine buildings onto a mirror
Today Computer technology is used to create designs in perspective
